Since Jerry is away for the month of April I thought I would try and report what is being seen so we have an idea what is migrating through or arriving at their summer breeding grounds. So if anyone wants to let me know what you are seeing around Erie County you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also if you have any photos you wish to share send them along as well.
Thanks and happy birding!
